Understanding Electric Snow Melt Systems: The Backstory

In essence, electric snow melt systems are like having a warm blanket under your driveway.

The Allure And The Limitations

The sheer convenience of an electric snow melt system cannot be overstated. It eliminates not only the backbreaking labor of shoveling snow but also the potential risks associated with it. Think slips, falls, and even heart attacks from overexertion.

However, as ideal as “snow melt driveway mats” seem, they come with their own set of drawbacks. For starters, the installation of these systems is no minor task. It often involves excavation, layout designing, and professional electric work, leading to significant upfront costs.

The operation of these systems, especially in areas with heavy snowfall, can also contribute to a notable increase in your electricity bill. Moreover, maintenance and potential repair costs are something to be considered, given the systems are installed under your driveway.
